Call for Contributors

Routledge are proud to announce the launch of the Routledge Annotated
Bibliography of English Studies (ABES), a unique reference tool for those
working in the field of English Literary Studies.

Routledge ABES is a specialised online bibliography providing annotated
entries on all of the most significant research in literary studies
published each year. It contains scholarly annotations on all the best new
criticism, from which users can find out about a publication, how it might
be of use to them, and whether it has particular strengths or weaknesses
that would be relevant to their work.

The database is organised around eight key sections: Medieval; Renaissance
and Early Modern; Eighteenth Century; Romanticism; Nineteenth Century;
Modernism; Postcolonial; Contemporary Literatures.

Routledge are currently inviting applications to contribute to the
Nineteenth Century Section. As a contributor to Routledge ABES you would be
called upon to create annotations to some of the best new research in
literary studies, helping to provide an indispensable guide for the rest of
the literary studies community. Your work would be fully acknowledged, with
contributors able to provide a short biography and a link back to their own
website, or profile.

Each section is headed by a dedicated section editor, who edits and
oversees the records in that section. If you are interested in becoming a
contributor to Routledge ABES you can contact the Nineteenth Century
section editor:

I am in particular need of Americanists,
especially with interests in Whitman, Twain, Dickinson, and ethnic
literatures, and of scholars in gender and sexuality,
but I welcome contributors in all fields of 19C studies
